I can show you a few................. the ones I did.

Professionals are people who can do their job when they don't feel like it.
Amateurs are people that can't do their job even when they do feel like it.

Happens all the time and has for a long while. It is really no fun to make the phone call to the broker that sent us to do a dewinterization to a property under contract for the appraiser, when the buyer (and sellers) believe the house is in good mechanical shape, that the plumbing is completely junk and freeze damaged.

I could be............... for a fee. lol





I know what ya'll are saying. The full time vendor in this area is terrible.

Professionals are people who can do their job when they don't feel like it.
Amateurs are people that can't do their job even when they do feel like it.

This is what we see ALL THE TIME:Water heaters at least partially full.Interior water shut off is on (basement or crawl or slab, doesn't matter)Residual water in the supply lines.One clean toilet, for photos; the rest are crapped up and dry.Wint notices in the sink or the counter from "Rick's Roofing" or "Simon's Pest Control." They may have a plumber on staff, they just don't send him anywhere.The bank, the broker, the property manager, no one knows the system isn't intact or properly winterized.My guys ask how these guys can get away with that kind of work. I don't think they are around long enough for it to come back and bite them.

When the price drops so does the standard. Minimum price = minimum amount of time to be spent on task.

Its simple economics but these nationals were absent on that day of lecture.

When we were doing them for realtors @$100 ea for a dry wint they would get a completely blown system water heater drained all the way and if there was sediment in the water heater preventing it from draining we would replace the valve and charge em 75 on top. They wanted the assurance it was done correctly. Thays why we looked forward to wint season. One day did 10 wints and were home in 9 hours. my laborer and I had a system and it went smmoooooooooooth .
